One Comment on “Our Speakers

  1. Hello,
    Tim Garner from Collegiate UMC Forum Sunday school class here. I see you had a speaker, Stacy Cordery, speak about First Ladies. Can you share her contact information with me? If not, can you send my contact information with her, with a request that she contact me regarding a speaking engagement at Collegiate UMC?
    Thanks.
